Car parts firm gearing up for electrical vehicles

A CAR parts manufacturer has invested £6m in its North-East plant to get up to speed for growth in the emerging electrical vehicles market.

Sunderland-based Unipres, which manufactures parts that form the internal structures of cars, has installed a 3,000 tonne press machine to make components suitable for electric vehicles.

The firm, which counts Nissan and Honda on its client list, has also installed five electric vehicle charging posts in the hope of encouraging staff to get behind this more sustainable method of transport.

The press, which will be operational by the end of 2012, will allow the North-East firm to significantly increase its capacity.

The components maker already has orders for parts to be used in eco-cars including the Nissan Leaf, which will be produced at the Japanese car firm’s Sunderland plant next
